Meeting every first Thursday of the month
The Town Street Tavern, (upstairs)
Horsforth Town Street, 8pm
Members welcome

Update mid day Saturday 9th December.
Regrettably we’ve had to cancel tomorrow’s trial at Deepcliff as it looks like it’s due for some heavy snowfall. Well done to Nige for diligently keeping abreast of the situation and calling it now rather than risking folk setting off tomorrow morning. As this was our last trial of the year, the final Points list is also as it stands now; click on ‘Posts’ then ‘Championship Points and Awards’ to see what you’ve won!
Merry Christmas to all our members, see you at Parkwood on 28th Jan.

Provisional list of our 2018 trials here – we’ll wait until they are a bit firmer before putting them all up in ‘Events’ and on TC.

Club Championship points and awards spreadsheet updated to include Bob Owen, click here to go to the Post.
Revised Bob Owen results, now complete and including the errant section 14 scores, have been published and it does affect positions including some award winning positions. Sorry for the earlier omissions but we got there in the end. Click on the Result over in the Recent Events bar.
Update; £1630.27 was raised for charity thanks to everyone who did their bit.

Well done to the ACU who have allowed 2018 Registrations nice and early! 
The simplest way to get sorted for next year is to click here follow the link and when prompted choose Option A which enables you to renew Club Membership at the same time. The ACU pass the info and Club Membership payment on to us. Keeps it nice and simple, all done in one go, no faffing about with Affiliation codes and you just need to bring your ACU card to a trial to prove you have both ACU registration and Club Membership for 2018. Call them on 01788 566417 if there’s a problem.

This message will appear at signing on:-

Where are our Trials? Just about everything you need to know about a trial (including the results afterwards) can be found by clicking on that specific event including a map of the location. There’s a bit more info on the locations (and maybe even the nearest postcode) in ‘Locations’ which is revealed when you mouse over the ‘Info’ tab.

RESULTS:- we always try to get the results up on the relevant ‘Event‘ page on here and there is a shortcut to them by clicking on the results message in the ‘recent events’ section just on the right (or below if you are reading this on a phone).
They are
also on www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials as soon as they are available (usually on the night of the trial unless something prevents it) so remember to have a look there – or if you are on facebook, ‘like’ our page and the results will come to you!
We also like to support TrialsCentral so the events and results can usually be found on there too although on a few occasions we’ve had trouble submitting them successfully.
Quickest way for recent events is to click on the result line on the right here (or below if you are reading this on a phone) in Recent Events. For historical results just go the the relevant ‘Event’.

All our day time trials start at 11.

Just a reminder of our Club Trial changes (that go back to the start of 2016) here and the Flags to follow here

2017 Events in ‘Events’ tab, printer friendly list in ‘Info, Forms’, early 2018 events in ‘Events’ tab, full details and printable list coming soon.

Costs held for 2018
Membership £10, (£5 16 & under), includes Swaine Woods access, Day membership £2
Club Series Trials, £15 adults, £10 16 & under
Other Trials might be dearer (usually Yorkshire Group Trials) as specified on the Regs.
Day ACU Registration £3.

Remember, if you ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials) you’ll get a notification reminding you of our next trial in the week before and also when the results are posted.Update; seems that, coincident with now receiving lots of unsolicited (paid for!) notifications, no longer is everyone receiving all FB/Horsforth posts on their FB page. Can only suggest that more frequent ‘liking’ might help improve the latter problem; I guess we are stuck with the former.
If anyone can throw any light on this please let us know.
